Scaffold- 70s

1979- 56" x 56"
Acrylic and String on Canvas
Copyright © Dennis Guastella 1979

The fragmented grid lines were first adhered to the primed canvas. A ground color was painted over the canvas and string to serve as a color field backdrop. The smaller and uniform grid was made by straight lines of acrylic extruded though a fine nozzle bottle to produce a somewhat parquet bending of the surface plane. The fragmented grid appears to hover over the underlying grid.
